Before I get into my CSAYL post I must recognize this day and what this country lost 8 yrs ago. Not a day goes by that I dont think about all those who were lost,how much my heart broke driving through NYC a few weeks after the attack and seeing how much a city I loved had changed, and how our country had changed. I will never forget.

This weeks challenge on CSAYL was hosted by Debbie of The Paper Garden and she said:

**Debbie here: I can remember making paper dolls and outfits for them as a child with my grandma. We would get wall paper sample books to make the outfits with. Paper piecing seems to be "in" again and I would love to challenge you to make a card using this technique. I look forward to seeing what you design**

To be honest I was not familiar with paper piecing so I went and did a bit of googling on the subject :) This is what I came up with. The Eskimos outfit is from the SU DSP set Merry Moments. I used Fun Flock on the parka. I made 5 of them to put towards the CCC-09 challenge on Splitcoast.

Supplies used(all supplies Stampin'Up unless otherwise stated):

Stamps-Polar Pals

Paper-Old Olive,Chocolate Chip,Very Vanilla, Merry Moments DSP

Ink-Black StazOn, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Versamark

Accessories-Fun Flock, Brads, Chocolate Chip ribbon
